    I have used the template for a twister and it turned out so cute. I also have a free pattern given out at one of our local quilt shops using charm squares that would be cute, although you use another fabric in the sashing. I will try to download the photo for you.Name:  9 patch switch pg 1.jpeg

    What about setting your nine patches on point. This would make the block look different too. Also fussy cut the center block with a flower or other design in you colors. Just some quick ideas. Good luck with your final decision.

    Maybe you could put them on point with either a dark or light background, whichever helps the blocks stand out a bit more!

    I really like this - I have some orphan 9p blocks that just might end up in a quilt like this

    I'm sure that you have some good solutions here. Alternate with another pattern and you have a totally different quilt. 9-patches are great to work with, but are boring if left by themselve. Use some pinwheels or other pattern of your choice to snazz up the quilt.

    Boy, is your mom lucky! I LOVE the Irish Chain block (uses standard 9-patch alternating with a neutral solid block) OR, more interestingly put together, the double Irish Chain (a 3 fabrics 25-patch). You can see the single, double, and triple Irish Chain variations here (http://www.quilt.com/Blocks/IrishChain/IrishChain.html). I think the suggestion of introducing some pink is a great idea, and/or a nearly white neutral for the alternating plain blocks--fun and lovely! All 3 variations are done in strip sets, so you can knock them out really easily. Good luck and post pictures.
